during our talk today using his most turn language yet that he says mitt romney needs to come clean. >> harry truman said, the buck stops with you. my understanding is that mr. romney attested to the ftc multiple times he was the chairman ceo and president of bank capital. i think most americans figure if you are the chairman, ceo and president of a company then you are responsible for what the company does. ultimately, mr. romney is going to have to answer those questions because if he aspires to being president, one of the things you learn is by you are ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations. that is probably a question he will have to answer. i think that is a legitimate part of the campaign. >> in the think he should answer that soon? >> absolutely. >> the president goes a comments to us during that interview getting a quick and decisive reaction from the mayor romney camp. mitt romney says it is chicago politics at its worst. he said -- so this war of words only intensifying. it will not go away anytime soon as we continue to look at the topic of mitt romney

"the boston globe" expanded on the recording, only to find out that mitt romney was the top dog at bain capital three years after he said he left. according to the report, a massachusetts financial disclosure form romney filed in 2003 clearly stated he owned 100% of bain capital in 2002. and his state financial disclosures indicate he earned $200,000 as a bain executive in 2001 and 2002. the report also drops this bombshell, a romney campaign official who requested anonymity to discuss the sec filings acknowledged that they do not square with common sense. until now, romney laz protected himself politically from any bain business practices after he left the company. romney always says
an almost round 40 a. for us, it is a the best way to connect because they live very far away and we do not get to see the mother rise. it is an important way for all of us to be able to connect with our families and with our communities. for americans living with disabilities, many of whom are also aging americans, broadband and commuters -- computers can provide even more critical tools for health and wellness. they allow someone with a speech impairment to e-mail her doctor, a person who is mobility limited to its in glasses -- classes online, and for someone else to work at home. 29% of people with disabilities would join the work force if telecommuting were actually a viable option for them. before working at home, however, broadband is now a necessity for anyone searching for a job. many job openings are only posted online. about 80% of fortune 500 companies only accept job applications online. and about 60% of working americans use the internet as an integral part of their jobs every single day. if you do not have broadband, you are increasingly cut off from these opportunities.

in billing when customers use less electricity because of energy conservation. this is the official maryland public service commission order that put the charge into law in january. and take a lock at this wording. right there on the original intent of this payback, it was to encourage utilities for energy efficiency. montgomery county officials were some of very few who spoke against utilities using the order supporting energy conservation, to reimburse utilities when no energy is going through your meter. >> it adds insult to injury. to say to a customer, you lost power for six or seven days. you thrown out all the food in your refrigerator and being told you'll pay extra because pepco lost money because they weren't delivering any electricity. >> montgomery county argued the bill stabilization adjustment eliminated the incentive for them to restore lost service. the order did limit the reimbursement to cover only the first 24 hours. prior to that, it was open ended. allowing pepco to get nearly $1.4 million for july 2010 blackout. delmarva, more than 35,000. and bge, more than $81,000.
